Open Thread - Sunday

After I posted the special 9/11 open thread this morning, I decided to look for some music for this open thread. One of the items I found was Yo-Yo Ma playing the Sarabande from Bach's Suite no1 for cello. I bookmarked it and continued to listen to some other pieces.

We had lunch, then switched on the TV and started watching the tributes at Ground Zero. I couldn't believe it when I heard the very item I had bookmarked played by none other than Yo-Yo Ma.

In the end I settled for another video featuring Bach's music, but it's less sombre than the Sarabande.
